3. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION AND DATA RETENTION

We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. We take appropriate security measures to protect your information against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information and data stored on our system. While no system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.

We use industry standard encryption for sensitive financial information such as credit card information supplied to our online store. Please note however that there are many independent online stores that sell Diamond products but are not owned or operated by Diamond and may have different practices.  You should read the privacy policy of any such site before using them.

It is important that you take measures to keep your information secure. Choose difficult online passwords and don’t share them or store them.  Log out of your accounts after every online session. Know the risks involved with using a shared or public computer or Wi-Fi network. You should also make use of privacy settings and controls.

We will retain your personal information for as long as you maintain an account or as otherwise necessary to provide services, and/or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

5. YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS UNDER THE CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT (CCPA) AND HOW TO EXERCISE THEM

Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information

As a California consumer, you have the right to direct us not to sell your personal information at any time, known as the “right to opt-out.” Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time. To opt-out, simply click the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” button, and from there, you can select what types of personal information will be sold (note the broad definition of “sale” in the CCPA, detailed above). 

Non-Discrimination

  • We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

    • Deny you goods or services.

    • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties

    • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.

    • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services, or a different level or quality of goods or services

Access to Specific Personal Information and Data Portability Rights

All California consumers have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about the collection and use of your personal information over the last twelve months. Upon receipt and confirmation of your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.

  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.

  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.

  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information

  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you

  • The categories of personal information we sold, or if we have not sold your personal information

  • The categories of personal information we’ve disclosed for a business purpose, or if we have not disclosed your personal information for a business purpose

Deletion Request Rights

All California consumers have the right to request that we delete your personal information that we’ve collected and/or retained from you, subject to certain exemptions and exceptions. Upon receipt and confirmation of your verifiable consumer request, we will delete your personal information from our records, as well as direct our service providers to delete your personal information, unless an exception applies. We may deny deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us and/or our service providers to:

  • Comply with a legal obligation

  • Complete a transaction, provide a good or service, or otherwise perform a contract

  • Debug products

  • Detect security incidents, protect against fraudulent or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities

  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and/or deletion rights described above, any California consumer may submit a verifiable consumer request by contacting us at:

Only you (California consumer) or an agent registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf may make a request related to your personal information (and the parent/legal guardian of a minor). We cannot fulfill your verifiable consumer request if we cannot verify your identity and/or authority to make the request.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you or your authorized representative are the person whose personal information is at issue/being requested. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

Response Timing and Format

We strive to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, you can elect to have our response delivered to that account. If you don’t have an account, you can elect to have our response delivered by mail or electronically.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12 month period preceding the verifiable consumer request, and will be provided in a format that is readily usable and sharable. If applicable, the response will also explain the reason(s) we can’t comply with a request. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to a verifiable consumer request, unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly

unfounded.

6. OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

a) Children’s Privacy and Parental Controls

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. Nevertheless, our databases may contain personal data of individuals under 13 because it is not always possible to determine the age of the user. DIAMOND believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a child-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address and other personal information without parental permission.

b) Disclaimer to Security

By consenting to the Terms and Conditions of the Websites and hence the Privacy Policy, you consent that no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure. We cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you provide to us and you transmit such information to us at your own risk.

c) Notification of Changes

DIAMOND reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion. Your continued use of the Websites indicates your assent to the Privacy Policy as posted.
